Bunk cushions

Hello all, newbie here.

I recently purchased an 03 coachmen cascade with triple bunks but unfortunately the bunks didn't have the cushions that come from the factory. Does anyone know where I can get cushions for these without costing an arm and a leg? Or does anyone have any ideas on what I can do instead of getting replacement cushions? Maybe use foam or something like that? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

I don't know what you pay for an arm and a leg, but here's a few ideas. What size are your bunks? Most are 28" to 38" wide, 74" to 80" long. Here's a link to a place with mattresses starting at $129. Mattresses for your RV or Motorhome
You could also go to a fabric store or big box store, buy a piece of foam and fabric and make your own. Third choice, use air mattresses.

That's a little out of my price range. I was leaning towards buying some foam and covering it with a mattress cover and then just using twin size sheets to complete it.

Last summer I had to do the same thing. After visiting the local foam store I went to Costco and found some ready made cushions at about 1/3 the price. They fold in 3rds with a little extra section for a headrest. The fit was made to order.

Sounds like this is your best solution. Many years ago I spent a fair
amount of $$ having new cushions made for a used TT, looked nice
and worked fine, but there are aways better solutions out there.

I actually found on eBay some foam sheets for $39 that are 4 inches thick and they are almost the exact measurements, they are just 3 inches too short but that's not a big deal because when u get the sheets on you'll never notice. I'm just going to go the craft store and get some fabric and have my aunt so it on the foam for me. I think this will work out perfectly and it's alot cheaper than buying mattresses at $129 a pop.

Sorry, that's all I could find on the tag. The packaging is long gone. They are made in Canada and from Google it appears that lawn furniture cushions and the like are what the brand makes. You might try Costco on line. Costco has lots of seasonal items that are available year round on line.
